From the time he was big enough to sit in his Bumbo chair on the counter, my son Miles has helped me in the kitchen. Sometimes, cooking together was one of the only things that got us through long, fussy winter afternoons before Dad got home. As a full-time mom of a toddler and a baby, I am forever looking for new activities that are educational and fun. As I searched for a place where Miles and I could share our joy of cooking with other moms and kids, I discovered that Northern Virginia lacks cooking classes for preschoolers. Shortly thereafter, I began offering weekly sessions out of my North Arlington home.

I’m Michelle and I’m a Virginia + Destination Portrait and Wedding Photographer based in Alexandria, VA. As a passionate photographer, I photograph the way they make me feel, not just the subjects. So it is always important for me to get to know my clients through a pre-session consultation and discuss my style and method. I understand how frustrating it gets when looking for the perfect photographer for your precious newborn, your annual family shoot, or the most special day of your life, because those moments are truly fleeting. The tip I can share is that ignore the technical aspect of the photographer (hey, all professional photographers know how to generate a perfectly focused and properly exposed photo), instead, ask yourself: do I feel the photographers’ excitements and joys when a genuine moment is captured? As a natural light photographer, I strive to create a unique experience that is tailored for each client. It never excites me to shoot generic poses that people find everywhere on face book page, magazines or blogs. Those are pretty, but not unique. My heart always melts for tender moments like a new mom tries to calm her baby, the smile a-baby-kick put on the mom’s face in the maternity session, or when parents chase after their little munchkins for a perfect pose! If that’s also what you are looking for, contact me and let’s plan together!

Mother & baby Matters is a highly specialized and comprehensive maternal/infant/family doula agency servicing the Washington DC, VA and MD area since 1991. We are writing to you to share information about our services, which may be beneficial to your families who have a need for postpartum guidance and support with newborns, multiple births, and/or sleep-related issues. Our highly professional doulas are all experienced mothers who have been specially trained by Mother & baby Matters’ faculty of specialists in their field. Our postpartum service program has been accredited by the NAPCS, National Association of Postpartum Care Services, and our basic postpartum training has been approved by CAPPA, the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association. Ongoing training, monthly staff meetings and educational programs provide our staff with information on newborn and postpartum care, breastfeeding, postpartum depression, apnea monitoring, and infant massage. Mother & baby Matters’ service maintains professional practice standards that are in accordance with the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Our company works closely with a network of physicians, hospitals and community agencies in the greater VA, MD and DC metro area that provide maternal-infant care. Our Postpartum program offers flexible plans for daytime and/or overnight assistance. In addition to providing assistance with newborn care, maternal care, breastfeeding and household tasks, our doulas provide guidance on recognizing baby cues, and establishing feeding and sleep schedules. Also, they are familiar with the signs & symptoms of depression, and can encourage the new mother to seek help if these signs or symptoms are seen. Mother & baby Matters also provides care to preemies and other special needs babies. Our Sleep Team experts work with the family on establishing healthy sleep habits that work best for their situation. Staff members allow the new mother to rest as much as possible until she is recovered from childbirth, is feeling stronger and her newborn is having longer sleep cycles overnight. Our Labor Support program offers specially trained doulas to assist the new parents during labor and delivery with a follow-up home visit to discuss postpartum care. According to a Harvard Health Letter, “Continuous support from doulas during labor provides physical and emotional benefits for mothers and health bonuses for their babies. With less medical interventions, fewer complications and shorter hospital stays, there may be financial savings as well.” In addition, Mother & baby Matters offers lactation consultation visits by Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs).
